Re-branded as a healthy lifestyle blog in January 2016, Happy Healthy Motivated is for everyone who hasn’t got the time, resources or motive to eat wholesome, nutritious food and lead an active life. I bring a positive and fun attitude to healthy living because I honestly believe filling your body with the nutrition it needs and exercising it like it was meant for should be something you look forward to doing every single day. If the idea of living by this mantra gets you excited, you’re going to love it here.

Here’s some of the stuff you can expect to see if you hang out here:

  • One quick and easy healthy recipe each week that tastes so good you’ll never guess it’s actually good for you.
  • A monthly round-up of everything that’s gone on behind the scenes at Happy Healthy Motivated.
  • A monthly fitness challenge we can all do together.

Basically, if you want to change your life so that you’re making healthier, more active choices naturally without even thinking about it, you should stick around and sign up for my mailing list. Not only will you get all my posts sent via email, but you’ll also get my exclusive weight-loss meal plan for free.

Want some proof that I know what I’m talking about? My recipes have been featured on Buzzfeed, Greatist, Foodista and Yummly and continue to reach a huge international audience every single day. Plus, I also develop healthy recipes for various other blogs and brands, including ActivewearUSA.

So, who created this delicious slice of healthy goodness?


That would be me! I’m Nicola, a British-born food and travel writer currently based in a teeny tiny beach-front apartment in Tenerife, Canary Islands (Spain). Since I had my first spoonful of mashed peas and carrots as a baby I’ve always loved eating food and since my grandma showed me just how easy it is to make your own amazing chocolate cupcakes when I still wasn’t tall enough to see over the counter, I’ve loved cooking.

I started my food blog in 2011 under the name Pink Recipe Box, but things change and as I naturally leant toward a healthier, more active lifestyle, I decided to take my blog with me. The recipes I post here are hands-down the food I eat on a regular basis, which is how I know they’re easy to prepare with simple ingredients, fast to make on a busy schedule and so delicious that you’ll honestly look forward to eating them!

Happy Healthy Motivated isn’t my main source of income. I’m a freelance food and travel writer and pay the bills by developing unique and yummy recipes for food blogs/websites, writing awesome and engaging blog posts about all the exciting places I’ve been to for travel blogs/websites and managing social media accounts for brands, filling them with super-sharable content followers love.
